"Star Trek" reboot
Finally saw the new "Star Trek" movie yesterday. I think I was expecting too much of the movie. I still enjoy the familiarity of the old characters from the hammy Shatner to the weird diction of Patrick Stewart. This Kirk was all right, and the the other actors really did a good job making the characters their own while keeping the essence of the originals. Uhura has a waaay larger part which is cool and her attraction to Spock hinted at in the original series is played to the hilt. The movie has a "Back to the Future" element in it which can be way cool or just plain confusing. At the end I am still confused. But it was an enjoyable 2 hours spent with loads of action and hey, decent science fiction.
